[Premium]:  58,850 pts.  Pathetic.  I usually get between 80k to 140k when doing level 1 only.  Two games in a row, I had the unfortunate luck of the bomb appearing in the top row.  I ordinarily outmaneuver it and the enemies in the top row; however, that was impossible to do these times and I get caught with over 800 remaining on the timer TWICE per game in both games!  Definitely giving this another go later.

[Premium]:  91,220 pts.  That's more like it!  Of course this happens on two consecutive lives (with a lot of time remaining on both lives).


Edit:  Although you cannot see it in the pic, a baddy was right on top of that bomb in the top row.  It unfortunately didn't get across the screen fast enough to reach me before the bomb, as it ended up right on top of that bomb when the baddy finally reached me.  I was busy devouring the others on the right side and did not have an opportunity to loop around from underneath and get it when it was still on the left.  Sucks when that happens...

Dugger proves to be our top driller with an extremely impressive score. Nicely done! I'd admire your's, Bmack's and others drive and determination with their gaming. Big thanks once again to everyone that partook in this challenge round! Our next round will feature a home brew that we have not played before.
